MV5BMTcxMDkxNTMwNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzc5MjUzNA@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): A homeless man (Rutger Hauer) is tired of seeing the streets being over taken with crime, mostly from the powers of man named Drake (Brian Downey). He steps in to defend a prostitute named Abby (Molly Dunsworth) and takes what money he has, buys a shotgun and starts to clean up the streets.

This film is nothing but over the top gore, violence and a small script of a hob with a shotgun who wants to bring the power of the people back. Right from the get go I knew I was into some shady acting and cheap plot once I saw Ricky (Robb Wells) from Trailer Park Boys in the first 5 min and to be honest I was entertained like I thought I would be.  We have some great Canadian talent appearing off and on in this film including even an appearance from George Stroumboulopoulos (nice skate death).

We have everything from one liners, shotgun shots, blown guts, burning children, topless women beating people with baseball bats, lots of heads rolling, Drug dealers, pimps, Santa Clause pedophiles, prime low dollar acting, cheesy music, the beautiful Molly Dunsworth, violent fun and over the top red blood splashing. If you like blood this is the film is a god damn ocean of it.

Rating: This film is over the top and very entertaining from start to finish. There was not much in this film where I was bored even though the plot was weak and the acting was pared. But I think that’s what made this film so much fun. This film has some of the best one liners, my personal favorite was “First I need to wash this guy’s ass off my face”. This is a pure drinking bloody gory senseless horror film! Drink up with some classic Canadian horror!
